girl who is attending the High school, this
morning. About 10 o'clock a strange
man and woman made their appearance
at the home of Mrs. Belle Stanton, 806
Nineteenth street. Tne man remained
outside at the gate and the woman en
tered the yard and rapped at the door. It
was answered by a young lady who is
boarding at the Stanton house, and upon
opening the door the visitor inquired if
Cloe Stanton was in, and upon receiving
a negative reply she left and was
again joined by her companion
at the gate, and the couple left.
As Miss Cloe, who is about 16 years of
age, was attending Bchool the family be
came alarmed and her sister, Miss Eva,
started for the High school building, whe e
the young lady attends, to bring her.
home. On her way there she
again met the stranger, who bad
in the meantime been joined by
another woman. Miss Stanton stopped
the trio and asked what was wanted of
her sister, to which one of the women re
plied that it was none of her business
The elder Miss Stanton then went to the
school building and accompanied her sis
ter home and nothing has since been
heard of the s'.rengers. A reporter for
The Argus called at Mrs. Stanton's
home this afternoon and was informed
that none of the family had the least idea
who the strangers were or what their ob

I am very much pleased that the snide

not answer my article in Sunday's Union

They accuse me defacing the shoes,

Tney are paralyzers, can sell less than

and can sell and will sell for another

Well, if the boys wish to compete with

I think it takes gall to ask such prices
as they have been asking for French kid(?)
as they call it.
They are paralyzers of the truth and
not the shoe business. They want me to
return the shoes. What for? So the
public can't see them.
If they were defaced by us, why don't
they prove it? Tney can't. They say I
bought old stocks; that's true, but where
are they now? For the benefit of M. &
K (so tbey may get a pointer) and the
people ot Rock Island, I will say, I took
a large stock to Mt. Pleasant, sacrificed it
there, and made another very large trade
laBt November for lands rather than sell
my patrocs in Rock Islard, goods that
were too old to be of any Bervice. French
kids went with them.
The Mt. Pleasant stock was moved to
Moiine and the firm there had to do the
same as M. &. K. to get rid of them.
I now have two of the largest, cleanest
and best selected stocks in this vicinity,
and our every day prices are lower than
